You can transfer (Export+ Import) Aliexpress products among WooCommerce stores using WordPress’s function. With a couple of simple steps, this article guides you to transfer Aliexpress products from a store to another store quickly and effectively.
Step 1: Export Aliexpress products from a WooCommerce store.
Go to Dashboard > Tools > Export, tick on the Ali product option, then click on Download Export file.
* Note 1: The XML exported file will include all aliexpress products ( In the Import List + Imported). The products in the Import List will have “Draft” status, and the products in the Imported will have “Publish” status.
Step 2: Edit the exported file
Step 3: Change product status in the exported file.
Change Aliexpress products which have “Publish” status to “Draft” status using the Find and Replace” function.
Search for this text line:
<wp:status><![CDATA[publish]]></wp:status> replace Publish to Draft.
